>> we need to fulfill constitutional obligations with our chief constitutional obligation is to hold the president accountable especially in an instance where the department of justice says it cannot hold the president accountable. those judgments must be made by congress, not a political appointee, the attorney general. >> gerrymander once the attorney general the united states to release grand jury material, that's where we are because they are so focused on getting the president, forget about the law they helped change, forget the rule of law and how things are supposed to happen. they are all about getting the president. >> get ready for more speculation and spin over the next couple weeks. the attorney general says it could be, before he presents to congress the mueller report and the version he is comfortable with and then the fight begins over whatever redaction see has made.

nielsen arizona today to meet with border patrol agents about handling the surge of migrants, how do americans in these communities want donald trump to handle the crisis? president tatum is a police officer who joins me with more. thank you for joining us, we appreciate it. >> thanks for having me. >> i don't know if you have the opportunity to see the video griff jenkins brought to fox news. he is at the border in the rio grande valley and crawling through the bush, the number of migrants, the type of migrants crossing the border illegally has escalated in the past couple weeks. what, in your opinion, you have been on the border, what is causing this escalation in violence and arrests happening in the past couple weeks? >> it has a lot to do with the
sanctuary state of california and the democratic party, they are actually welcoming these people and promising them refuge here and decriminalizing their actions of coming over here illegally. that is stimulating the rumors and propaganda on the border and it is shameful and it is an emergency. i don't care what any politician says. heather: what the people at the border want to see happen? the president talked about sending military troops to the border. closing the border down altogether. what do people who are there and experiencing this want to see? >> they want to be protected and feel safe. they don't want their has to be overrun in the escalation of violence and the destroying of their communities. whatever the president has to do, whatever the country decides to do we are going to go in the right direction. citizens wanted to happen. if it closes the border i
believe most people are in favor of that if it will help us deter crime and all the negative things coming with this. shannon: do you think the threat to close the border is causing this escalation? people making a mad dash to make it into the country before that happens? >> i don't have the evidence to say that is true but using common sense i can understand it could be a contributing factor. they want to get to the border before we close the border but that's not the leading factor in coming over here. i think they feel, people do this all the time, they are relaying messages to individual still in mexico or coming from these countries in the south, they are willing messages to them, if they can just make it over here and make it to states like california everything is going to be okay which is a mess but that is the rhetoric being pushed to them and they want to come over more aggressively.
shannon: they cross the borders and is the crossover they want to get caught, one reason being california, the ag saying illegal immigration should be decriminalized. how concerning is this when it comes from top officials in the state? we have democratic candidates, at least two so far saying as well they want to decriminalize illegal immigration. >> california should be outraged that someone in such a high position will hurt the people of california. california has fourth of american homelessness in the country. me and a couple friends were in california at a diner and i had tears in my eyes as i saw black men come into the restaurant begging us for food. like we were in a third world country. california can't take care of their own citizens. what makes them think they are going to handle tens of
thousands of people coming into their state, where are they going to live, what resources will be provided for them? they will step over people in the country that are not getting resources, it is shameful and are these politicians that out of touch with reality or evil? one of those has to be a parent because there is a crisis at the border, illegal people coming over here, it is not safe for them to be here, they don't have social security cards, they don't have space. it is terrible all the way around and i wish they would step up and do what is right for the country and stop being fake politicians. shannon: i believe it there because you said it will. thank you for joining us, you are fired up and rightfully so this morning so we will see what happens moving forward because something needs to be done for sure. the time is 20 minutes after the hour. mark zuckerberg prioritizing

facebook doesn't care about your privacy. >> users were interrupted by a prompt asking for the password associated with their facebook profile, uses like e sushi describes the experience as a next step to logon. facebook claims it was a simple security measure, part of a process they call two step authentication and insists, quote, these passwords are not stored. less than the company did admit to storing hundreds of millions of user passwords. in an email to fox news facebook deflected blame saying users have other options. >> it would require the eyesight of a falcon and discern what all the small print was at the bottom because it was not easily accessible for the average user. >> facebook is recalibrating writing we understand the password verification option isn't the best way to go about this so we are going to stop offering it. experts remind people that
legitimate companies usually steer clear of asking users for their passwords and for good reason. this comes just a few months after facebook was exposed sharing its users phone numbers with advertisers. >> six states and the district of columbia suing the trump administration over rollbacks to the school lunch program. the new rules we can requirements for sodium and whole grains. the lawsuit changes -- says the changes are illegal because the government wasn't seeking public opinion given a next the nation for them. the rules were part of michelle obama's let's move campaign. the usda is not commenting. house democrats demanding the irs provide donald trump's personal and business tax returns. the president dismissing the request after learning they want documents from the past 6 years. >> is that all?

inappropriate behavior hours after the former vice president released a video confronting the allegations. the latest as democrats remain divided. >> we are now at we 7 women and for some they are all painting a cringe worthy picture of the former vice president who is expected to make a 2020 run for the white house, the latest three women are sophie and allie who told the washington post about some uncomfortable run ins with the former vp so, biden pressed his for head against hers making her feel uncomfortable. connor said the same thing and she added biden also called her a pretty girl and said he squeezed her shoulder, complement her smile and held her too long, this is the vice president just released a video in which he doesn't really apologize but vows to be more
mindful. some women say it is not enough. >> it is about taking selfys together. social norms began to change and the boundaries of personal space is set. >> i would like to think perhaps this is a time of realization and self-awareness for mister biden. time will tell. but i think no one should define another person's boundaries, period. >> democrats are divided over his actions. kamala harris saying she believes the victims and commend them for coming forward but the former vp simply needs to understand his warmth may be misinterpreted by some people. >> interesting also how the obamas have been very silent on
this. democratic leaders like nancy pelosi struggling to respond to the latest allegations against joe biden in light of the brett kavanaugh crusade. commentator and author heather mcdonald's says they said a new standard for what is offensive. >> we are supposed to be for diverse city. how about accepting the diversity the older generation that has a different style of engagement, has not been terrorized into frigid self-criticism by feminist harpies that cannot understand that there are different human beings, different ways of relating to people. this is going to end norman -- normal human intercourse as we know it if they are allowed to get away with this. these females that there was nothing sexual about it. the conversation should end there but the new standard now
feminists are sitting is they determine by their subjective experience the character of experiences was no reasonable person standard, certainly not going to accept the males view that as biden said i had no intention to offend anybody. i was not intending anything sexual. none of that matters now. if a feminist feels offended, then the interaction is offensive. that is a recipe for chaos and alienation. >> prior to the allegations biden was widely rumored to join the crowd 2020 field as the front runner. virginia's lieutenant governor is trying to prove innocence of sexual assault allegations. justin fairfax calling on prosecutors in massachusetts and north carolina to investigate after two women accused him of sexual assault, fairfax denies the allegations and is releasing

the queen of country is about to be the queen of the racetrack. ♪ working 9-to-5 ♪ what a way to make a living ♪ getting by ♪ >> reporter: dolly parton sponsoring her own race car. tyler reddick will speed off at a race this weekend and dolly's home state of tennessee. that is awesome. let's see that. 20 minutes until the top of the hour, donald trump putting the crisis at the border ahead of the economy. >> security is more important to me than trade. shannon: what message does that send voters with 2020 on the horizon which are voter panel is here to weigh in. ♪ choosing my car insurance was the easiest decision ever. i switched to geico and saved hundreds. that's a win.
>> trading is very important, borders are very important, security is most important. you will hear me talking about trade but let me give you, security is more important to me than trade. we are going to have a strong border, or we are going to have a close to border. >> the president vowing to put the safety of americans first even if the economy takes a bit. is that what the american voters want? we invited a panel to weigh in. joining us is aaron comey and green mcnally, thank you for joining us, we appreciate it. hearing directly from the voters and what they want. i will start with you. what do you think? is that something you are in favor of? >> absolutely. i do believe it's one of the first priorities, to defend our country.
>> what about you? >> i'm surprised this is donald trump's take considering how much the economy and businesses meant to him, this wasn't what i expected, the position i expected him to take, the effect this could have on the economy. >> i agree with the gentleman who just spoke. i don't see this, especially how he is so into the economy, so many people telling them this will be good for the economy. it seems a deflection to take away from the economy to get people to focus on the border. shannon: one of those people who does question the economics of it when it comes to shutting down the border altogether was ted cruz.
we have a statement from him where he said the answer is not to punish those crossing the border, not to punish texas farmers and manufacturers and small businesses. in his opinion it would come at a cost in terms of the economy so he is tying both together as you were just mentioning. back to you. you said you do agree with the president in terms of protecting the country and border security being more important than the economy. >> just look at what new york state legislation, the budget, they just voted this past week, $27 million, free college for illegals, we are paying the bill. they do the majority, i do understand there's a lot of people out there that want to come to america like i did. i'm from brazil. >> you are a legal immigrant. >> i went through all the processes. it was hard.
it is not easy but was worth it every step of the way. they do know how to work the system. some people say if i have a child the government will give me a chance. we are paying for that in many ways. we -- what we need in my opinion is congress to get to work and do what they are supposed to. we need immigration reform. shannon: you consider yourself a moderate when it comes to issues and political issues so speaking of congress needing to do some work does this sway you one way or another when it comes to republicans or democrats? >> i see families on both sides and agree there needs to be action taken to reform the immigration system but one of the key points to realize is if illegal immigration is made
easier illegal immigration will go down. but there needs to be drastic entitlements to entitlement programs because taxpayers shouldn't have to carry a burden. >> fixing illegal immigration is something several administrations have been trying to deal with and no one seems to have been able to do anything until this point so we are at this point where we have 53,000 border apprehensions on average per month so what do you think we need to do. we have an election coming up, democratic candidates coming forward with their solutions to the problem, two of those saying we should decriminalize illegal immigration. >> by decriminalize it, it would work. when you see a number like 53,000 am a to me it seems as if the people on the border are doing their job. they are stopping the flow of
illegal immigrants. that would come to harm us or harm our economy. i don't see a need to shut that down because approximately 1.2 billion people cross over legally a day that are helping our economy. i am more afraid -- i was in northeast ohio and this morning i drive past the lord's town and they closed and these people -- and seeing the economy collapse, you see a lot more things tend to go negative. shannon: we appreciate all of you coming on so early. great to hear from people out there who will be heading to the polls and making a difference in terms of who you vote for. have a great day.

heather: does that send the wrong message? carly shimkus with serious xm 115 with the online reaction. >> a surreal sort of scene, lori laughlin signing autographs heading into court but she does have her fans still which is good for her. kind of surprising because of the backlash and fallout. she has been smiling throughout this whole process. every news article that is written talks about how she has a big warm smile when she landed at logan airport, sign autographs as well but the attitude has been a topic of conversation on social media. charles says to liberty trump's character in our broken culture, cheryl tweets we live in an upside down world. poor optics, poor judgment. i think she is smiling as a way

can draw a crowd and another twitter user says under the illusion that hollywood swings votes. >> let's talk about the prince and princess. >> breaking situation. they have joined instagram this weekend they broke a guinness book of world records reaching 1 million followers in the shortest period of time. congratulations to the duke and duchess, a new instagram account reached 1 million followers in less than 6 hours beating out the pope. when twitter user says the grand game. i love that tweet and another person on social media posted this meme in response. i like that. 3.3 million. >> megan was on it separately and that is what happened.
